Meet the Poet
M. D. Friedman writes from the moment, chiseled fresh with revision. He draws influences from sources as divergent as William Butler Yeats and the delta blues. His fifth volume of poetry, Leaning Toward Whole, was released by Liquid Light Press in 2011. He has won numerous awards including the New Zealand Poetry Society 2008 Poetry Contest. His spoken word performances often incorporate musical elements such as blues harmonica and sound sculpting with live effected Theremin. Read.
